Trujet to receive five ATR 72-600 this year

Hyderabad, India - Indian regional airline operator TruJet will take delivery of five ATR 72-600 by the end of this year.

The arrival of new turboprops will double the carrier's existing fleet, which consists of two ATR 72-500 and three ATR 72-600. The airline has 15 -600 variant in total in its order book with the Franco-Italian aircraft manufacturer.

After receiving five copies this year, a further five to eight aircraft will join the Indian operator's fleet next year.

Trujet aims to consolidate its position as a strong player in India's regional aviation market after reaching 20 aircraft in the fleet.

The regional carrier eyes northeastern India as a significant growth area. The new turboprops will enable Trujet to add new destinations in its current network in the northeastern part of the country over the next 12 to 18 months.
